Cloud security in the era of WikiLeaks
Public Clouds and the Apartment Building Analogy
How much security responsibility do you want to have in the era of WIkiLeaks?
A different security issue concerns how much can we trust a cloud vendor to maintain the confidentiality and privacy of data you entrust to them. This is a consideration with any software any of us uses these days. We live in an era of WikiLeaks, apparent semi-official Chinese theft of Google and Adobe data, Israeli attacks on Iranian nuclear power system networks, and newly intrusive data mining by US authorities.
